I love this template. However, since updating today (via the “update” button provided by my wordpress admin page), I now do not seem to have any of the little built-in icons for things like “Categories” or “Tags”. Just a little square:
Is there an easy solution?

Very weird – countless other websites that have been updated are showing those icons just fine, including the preview on WordPress.org: http://wordpress.org/themes/generatepress
Do you have any custom CSS or plugins dealing with FontAwesome?
Maybe a caching plugin? Minifying anything?October 16, 2014 at 9:31 am #39525Jack Sankey
No, not sure what’s causing it. I’ve since wiped all history, and just now tried disabling all plugins / wiping history / private session.
I’m reasonable at coding if you tell me where to look. Also note my wp-admin is at a different address than my website (so I can log in over https)October 16, 2014 at 12:27 pm #39613TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Hmm, it may have something to do with how you’ve set up your admin/https.
Using Firebug, I get this error on your site (starred out sensitive info):
Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at http://box***.bluehost.com/****/****/wp-content/themes/generatepress/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff?v=4.2.0. This can be fixed by moving the resource to the same domain or enabling CORS. http://box**.bluehost.com/***/****/wp-content/themes/generatepress/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff?v=4.2.0 Line 0
I’m not 100% sure how you’ve set stuff up, but perhaps this helps you?
Let me know 🙂October 17, 2014 at 10:12 am #39797Jack Sankey
I dug around the interwebs for this error and found something about enabling “Cross-Origin Resource Sharing”. I ended up adding the following line to my .htaccess file:
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin http://www.sankeylab.ca
which made it work. Weird that this wasn’t necessary prior to the update, but no complaints.
Now if I can only figure out how to get the little “edit this post” link to appear when I’m logged in to wordpress… Having the different domains for the wordpress login and actual website causes so much trouble.
Thanks Tom! Your obvious responsiveness (and awesome theme) was what originally encouraged me to pull the trigger on the “pro” version. No regrets!!October 17, 2014 at 10:17 am #39801TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
It probably happened after the update because I was originally pulling the FontAwesome file from their CDN, but WP.org frowns upon that so I packaged it within the theme for this version – didn’t anticipate it causing issues, sorry about that!
If you got the other icons to appear, the “Edit” link and icon should be there – let me know if you can’t figure it out.
Thanks! I really appreciate the support 🙂October 17, 2014 at 10:28 am #39808Jack Sankey
No worries. I’m not expecting a lot of traffic. 🙂
Regarding the “edit this post” link, I have a suspicion this is a wordpress / bluehost problem. I basically added this after the content (with your GP Hooks plugin):
[<?php edit_post_link(‘edit this post’, ‘<p>’, ‘</p>’); ?>]
You can see the little brackets with nothing inside on each post, so I know it’s at least trying to do what I want it to do. Nothing appears, though, and I’m logged into wordpress (via the other secure address / domain) in another tab.
Anyway, if you know the trick here, let me know, but otherwise I’m going to be poking bluehost about it.

There should already be an edit link below each page/post when you’re logged in by default – shouldn’t be any need to add one.January 12, 2016 at 6:49 am #165288avraham
I am also trying to fix the font awesome issue where the icons don’t show up, but I don’t understand how to fix it. Are there step by step instructions somewhere I can access?
Thanks so much,

I hadn’t put any icons on the blog page.
I played around and I think either it is because the icons were in a column, or because I put heading tags around them. Could that have been it possibly?
Because I put the icons without the columns and without the h tags and I see them now.
On these pages so far:
And so far they are staying. Great news, and I hope it lasts.
Thanks, all the best,

Where you place them shouldn’t matter really – just make sure you add the correct classes.
<i class="fa fa-bars"></i>
Everything looks great on your site to me 🙂
